What caused woman to black out and cause a deadly car accident?

By their very nature, Louisiana accidents are unpredictable. Innocent people can go about their lives without any idea that they are going to become the victim of a car accident. For example, a man who was standing outside talking to another person had no way of knowing that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time -- and it cost him his life.

Was trucker negligence the cause of 7-car pileup?

Most drivers expect congestion on Louisiana highways. They remain vigilant in order to adjust to the traffic patterns ahead of them.

In fact, trucker negligence is believed to have caused a recent pileup on Louisiana Highway 3132.

Most Louisiana drivers have ended up behind a slower moving vehicle on a two-lane road.

However, if the driver behind you fails to do the same, the vehicle could crash into the back of yours. In fact, often times, rear end collisions are caused by distracted drivers.
